Peter Case, Count Kellam, Steve Wilkinson 

When: Thu., April 10, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $10
Peter Case was the crux of two legendary second-wave power-pop bands: the Nerves, alongside drummer Paul Collins and guitarist Jack Lee; and later the Plimsouls, a slightly-less-legendary group best remembered for the hit "A Million Miles Away." (The Plimsouls also have a wealth of equally noteworthy material—namely, every song off the group's self-titled 1981 debut.) In 1986, Case ditched the Chelsea boots for a stupid fedora, and reintroduced himself to the music-buying public as a "mature solo artist"—often a dubious decision for reputable pop craftsmen—but the resulting eponymous LP is a star-studded (T-Bone Burnett! Roger McGuinn! Van Dyke Parks!) melange of styles that remains one of the most unjustly forgotten-about albums in the annals of pop. MORGAN TROPER
